Tottenham Hotspur took on Bournemouth at the new stadium in North London back in November 2019, with the Lilywhites winning 3-2 on the day.

However, the match has been back in the headlines this week for all the wrong reasons, as one Cherries fan has been banned from football for three years after racist chanting (Sun).

The 17-year-old supporter is said to have hurled ‘sick abuse’ at Tottenham players during the game, resulting in the ban, a £55 fine, and a £21 surcharge.

At Highbury Corner Magistrates Court yesterday, the teenager who has remained unnamed, admitted to the indecent/racial chanting.

Spurs Web Opinion:

Unfortunately, this is the latest in a long line of racial incidents in the Premier League, as individuals continue to tarnish the great sport with acts of vile hatred.

Fortunately, with new technology and stadiums such as that of Tottenham Hotspur, it is becoming easier to identify the culprits and bring them to justice.

It is important to remember that these are the actions of the few, not the many, but it needs to be stamped out of the beautiful game.
